So I've been trying to do a regular scheduled backup, and since I get this ... RIM Desktop Software forum
Hmm I was about to post about this and realized I already did. And its still happening with a fresh install of os v22.214.171.124.
No one has any idea what it could be?
I just ran in to this error today when trying to do a backup.
I'm on 126.96.36.199 with DM 4.5. I wonder if we have to use DM 4.6?
I just started having the same issue. (OS 188.8.131.52, 8320) I back up regularly, and never had this issue with DM 4.5 until I upgraded to 4.6. The first time I tried to back up using 4.6, I got the error. Then I downgraded to 4.5, and I'm still experiencing the problem. Can't seem to figure out what's going on, but if I do I'll be sure to post the solution here...

Come on, Pinstackers!! Someone has to have a fix!
I have been told if you go into advanced on the DM backup screen and delete your profiles it wont hang up on the backup, but then you loose your profiles!!
You would actually clear out whatever database the DM happened to be on at the time of the error. Some are easier to deal with than others.
If it's a larger DB like your Address Book, then you might not want to be so hasty in clearing it out! Could just be one entry in the Address Book horking things up, so a little more research would be in order in that case. Then again, if you're syncing with Outlook or another such client, then you can go ahead and clear it out and then reload with a sync.
So again, you'll clear out the database it is attempting to back up when it errors out. In my case, I was hanging up at the Browser Cache database and had to clear that out before being able to successfully back up all the way through.
Hope this helps.
I have just upgraded from Curve to Bold on AT&T. DTM v.184.108.40.206 installed from disk on desktop and laptop. First back-up worked on each. Next backup on each machine returned the error message - stopped backing up at "profiles" in both cases. I m on BES.
When I go to advanced at DTM backup and restore it "profiles" is grayed out and the DTM screen notes tha unavailable databases have been configured for wireless synchronization, are read only and cannot be restored or cleared.
Is there another way to deal with the backup error ?
I answered your post in the other thread.

Where you said:
However, as the original poster said, "profiles" is grayed out and the DTM screen notes that "unavailable databases have been configured for wireless sync", thus "clear" isn't an option for profiles. If you have answered this elsewhere please let me know since I am also experiencing this issue with a new AT&T Bold.

Yes RoGro. In my case it's grayed out in the Backup>Advanced application.

Happened with my 8310 again when backing up before migrating to my Bold using DM 4.6. I just did an Advanced Backup, only thing stopping me was KeePass for Blackberry and everything else backed up fine.
Yes exactly, when backing up.

However on BES at Back up/Restore/Advanced I and otherscan see profiles/profiles and other databases ,but they are greyed-out and consequently 'read only'. I as well as others have tried disabling all wireless reconcile on all accounts, etc. Went back into Backup/restore/advanced and both profile/profiles and other databases are still read only... ie; cannot 'clear' them from the device."
Does anyone know how to do this ?
Its really annoying that installing the WSJ has so messed things up.
